is hidden. i remember for a book i did called "the agenda" on bill clinton, and it was about his economic plan. i interviewed him once, and it was on background. but he's talked about it, so i have talked about it. and you go into to the oval office. this was early 1994, and clinton drills you with this eye contact that is absolutely a gravitational force. i've never seen anyone maintain eye contact like bill clinton. and to a -- and it's unblinking. and he just stares and, of course, it creates a sense of intimacy, it slows time down, and i remember thinking this eye contact is amazing, and somebody later suggested to me, said, well, he wanted to be president ever since he was 5. [laughter] and he decided to contribute all organs in the body to the task. [laughter] including the eyes. [laughter] and it's, you can drain yourself. you just don't -- you can train yourself, you just don't blink. so we're going through there, and i thought, oh, this is a great interview. and he's so focused. i each started thinking, oh -- i each started thinking, oh, he realizes how brilliant my questions are
had to dramatically, as did george w. bush and bill clinton before him. campaigns are about one vision of the world that is critical of their opponent, whether it is the incumbent or the previous president. for example, george w. bush on russia said bill clinton was wrong, he personalize our relationship, invested too much in boris yeltsin, and that is a disaster. i will be a realist, thinking about america's national interest, and what did he do? he got into office, met with vladimir putin, looked into his eyes, and famously saw his soul, so people pivot. barack obama said he would negotiate with our enemies and our friends, and outlined a new policy of engagement to iran and north korea. those things did not happen. reality did not permit it. the record is running on would have astonished many supporters of barack obama in 2008. host: susan glasser is the editor in chief of "foreign policy magazine." here's a question from tony on twitter. the obama reset with russia, bush looking into platooned's soul neither worked well. this is a part of the region that you know well. guest: we pa
is the front page of "the washington post" this morning. clinton was among the first obama administration officials to publicly condemn the attack and warned the deaths of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans." host: "and the administration account of the attack. the state department instead will send a trusted to rid diplomat along with three security officials. had the hearing, as they depart officials provide new details about the attack while asserting there was no way to predict or prevent the sustained assault." as we read from "the washington times," they took away any claims that this attack was due to protests about that video. that is a front page of "washington times." they also include a timeline, a brief chronology about the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya, if you are interested in that, in "the washington times." david miliband writes this morning -- host: that is some background for you before you tune in to the hearing. our coverage at noon today, that is when the hearing begins. chad, silver spring, maryland, independent. thanks
. you're right, we said in the run up to 2008 that hillary clinton was the most dominant front-runner in politics. that had nothing on what we should be if she decided to run in 2016. >> can i just -- no. i got to tell you. you know, i know she's enormously popular right now but it's because she's not running. i mean, it's not that hard to be that popular. >> but a lot of democrats are saying, wait a minute, she literally got shafted in 2008. this is not fair. this is her turn and thus -- look, this is -- >> they're saying, she's been a loyal soldier for the last eight years, quote-unquote. she has to run. >> i said it in '08. i'll say it in '16. it is not a place for loyalty or for mrs. clinton. it is an indication about one's own ability. i think she's fantastic. i really do. i also think that american voters don't particularly like older women. we won't even buy like makeup from older women. i think even as i was talking about joe biden being 70, hillary clinton as an aging woman becomes less and less appealing to american voters. not in the way that -- just in a way that i
department under the bus. >> no question. >> two different areas. that's hillary clinton. hillary clinton runs the state department. is hillary clinton being thrown under the bus by vice president biden in all of this. if you ask lt. general michael hayden, former director of national security and michael chertoff former homeland security secretary basically saying there wasn't a failure of intelligence. maybe the hand is now pointing at the state department. listen to them. >> actually re -- >> for the vice president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in
call on this from clinton, illinois. matt is waiting on the independent line. good morning. caller: mitt romney needs to go after the whole libya at incident. he may have made a few missteps regarding coming out with information, but he needs to layoff of that, because it is one thing that he can actually use. i do not know if it will help his foreign policy, because obama can just come back and say -- that is what i did -- but that is something he will really have to focus on if he wants to do those foreign policy speeches. host: thank you for giving us a ring this morning. you want to show you a little bit from that speech released yesterday. mitt romney is expected to say that he knows the president hopes for a safer and freer and more prosperous middle east -- host: we want to bring in now from "the washington post" a reporter to talk about this speech today. thank you for joining us today. caller: thank you for having me on. host: what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? caller: as was mentioned this morning, this will be late in the game for him to be giving a speech

a bum rep. if you read the conversations, the clinton tapes, he's expressing concerns and fears to clinton, and clinton is sympathetic with these things. needed a better pr organization to help him out. >> okay. by the way, is that patrick seal? >> is that patrick seal? patrick focused too much on the conspiracy theories of why certain things happened in the region. >> turning to egypt, you interviewed a lot of people in the movement. you mentioned the 1990s, obviously, where the, you know, basically the egyptians put down, and it is islamist insurgeon sigh and stapped to death, end of the movement. >> which, by the way, the leadership was against. >> the islamic -- >> in prison. >> yeah, yeah. they were much more. the question is, you know, is there any likelihood of the head of al-qaeda to resuscitate an al-qaeda-like group in egypt or other groups or egyptians gone through that in the 1990s seen as a dead end? how do you see that sort of militant movement in egypt playing out? >> here's the thing. first of all, all of the friends entered the political process. they renounced
, there's this. hillary clinton takes the lead. quote, confirmed, i got the bird. we will move him to a safe house in the morning. that's hillary clinton. now, a few words from a member of the house science committee, georgia republican paul brown, a medical doctor, gave a sermon at a baptist church last month and addressed the issue of evolution. >> i've come to understand that all that stuff i was talk taught about evolution, embryology, big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. and it's lies to try to keep me and the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. there are a lot of scientific data that i found out as a scientist that actually showed that this is really a young earth. i don't believe that the earth has been around 9,000 years. i believe it was created in six days as we know them. >> well, bill nye, the science guy, had this to say in response to congressman brown's comments. quote, since the economic future of the united states depends on our tradition of technological innovation, representative brown's views are not
, as president clinton said. the reality is that any past or on tax reform that promises to cut rates will either end up failing to reduce the deficit or failing to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. you can, at most, achieved two of these goals. anyone pushing a plan purporting to accomplish all three is not telling the truth. the sooner we are honest with ourselves about this, the easier it will be to negotiate an actual compromise on taxes and on deficit reduction. in 1986, we chose to cut the top rate and protect the middle class. we did not seek to reduce the deficit. simpson-bowles seeks to cut the top rate and reduce the deficit but did not shield the middle class. -- from a net tax increase. we need a third approach that project -- prioritizes reducing the deficit and protecting the middle class and is willing to forgo a reduction in the top rate and that is what i am proposing today. what should this proposal look like? it would have three principles -- first, as in 1986, it still makes sense to reduce the number of expenditures in the code to the extent possible. in figur
on the street with the clinton crime bill. this crowd wants to take cops away. i mean, there are so many differences between these two candidates tonight. these are two ideological titans going at it. it is going to be fun to watch, and i think the president's right. joe be joe, everything's going to be just fine. and i think the fact that they're sitting down is good. i've seen biden in person many times on the stump standing up. he gets a little carried away. sitting down tonight might be to his advantage. >> the thing i keep thinking about is what is going through paul ryan's head? when you think about it as a politician or public figure, who your peer group is you're trying to impress, paul ryan, right wing think tanks, conservative movement, ideological elements. is he going to go up on the stage tonight and renounce it all? that is the strategic chose made by the romney campaign. you're going to go up there and everything you've done since the first day you were a junior staffer on the hill to now, we want you to throw it out the window and do it in front of everyone. is he going t

of "the washington post" this morning. the attack could mark the clinton legacy. clinton was the first of the obama administration officials to condemn the attack and mourn the death of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans but as the state department has weathered the republican-led criticism of the warning signs before the september 11th attack, clinton has been invisible. clinton will not appear the oversight hearing on the libya attack where they've said they will question the state department security preparations and the administration's account of the attack. the state department plans to the interest in their career with other officials. ahead of the hearing they provided new details about the attack or asserting that there had been no way to predict or prevent the same assault. and as we read in the "the washington times" earlier, the report that the state department according to them took away any claims that this attack was due to the protest about that video to read that is the front page of the "the washington times" this morning. they also in case you a
clinton was president and our economy had the biggest surplus in history, and created a lot of millionaires. governor romney said it is fair that he pays a lower tax rate and a teacher or autoworker who makes $50,000. he is wrong. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for having a home or raising a kid, just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut. i refuse to pay for that tax cut by asking students to pay more for college, taking kids out of head start programs, or eliminating health care for millions of americans who are poor or disabled or elderly. that is the choice we face in this election. that is what the election comes down to. over and over, we have been told by governor romney, congressman ryan, and their allies in congress, that unless government can do everything, they should do almost nothing. if you cannot afford health insurance, and do not get sick. if a country releases air pollution, that is the price of progress. if you cannot afford to go to college, just borrow money from your parents. you know what? that is not who we are. t
an identifier as who we were. we were the choom gang. >> bill clinton, you know, famously said he didn't inhale. obama, on the other hand, not only inhaled but was sort of the ringleader of the idea of total absorption, what they call ta, where you had to make sure that everything got inhaled. take roof hits while you're in the car. >> i think it was important to barry because perhaps it did fill a void that wasn't apparent at the time. i don't think any of us thought of it that way, but now in retrospect, we look back and went, hey, we really were a family. this was really, really cool. >> narrator: obama's senior yearbook tells the story. >> in his yearbook he thanks "gramps and toot," who are stan and madeline, his grandparents, and the choom gang, and ray for the good times. who was their drug dealer. who was kind of a hippie who could get them the good stuff. and he doesn't thank his mother. >> narrator: by the time he graduated from punahou, obama had decided to leave hawaii. >> one of the central themes that i find from his life is his intense desire to avoid being trapped. his mother ha
